11/5/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1103-chris-brown-getty-instagram-01Chris Brown's posse is accused of beating a woman so badly at a Vegas party she was hospitalized for whiplash. 

Jakaria, a 28-year-old insurance agent, tells us she was hanging with Brown and his crew early Sunday at Palms Casino Resort. She says everyone had to leave their phones with his security, and when she went to pick up her 2 phones, his team thought she was trying to steal someone else's.

That's when Jakaria says Brown's security guard got violent, grabbing her by the hair, shaking her around and throwing her to the ground. She says the guard tried to stomp on her but someone mercifully stepped in.

Jakaria says she got home but realized she was in bad shape so she called an ambulance. Doctors told her she had whiplash. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ cops took a battery report and they're looking into the incident.

breaking news


Soccer superstar Karim Benzema -- who was connected to Rihanna over the summer -- was arrested in France Wednesday morning as part of investigation into a sex tape blackmail case involving another player. 

The 27-year-old Real Madrid star was reportedly summoned to a police station in Versailles where he was questioned about an extortion attempt involving France midfielder Mathieu Valbuena ... who plays with Benzema on the French national team. 

The investigation began back in July -- and reportedly involves a sex tape that was shot on a cell phone. 

Investigators are focusing on a conversation between Benzema and Valbuena from October -- in which the tape is brought up. Investigators were curious if Benzema was giving Valbuena friendy advice on how to handle the situation ... or trying to extort him. 

It's a big deal for Benzema -- if convicted of blackmail in France, he faces up to 5 years behind bars. 


Bill Cosby D.A. Election Makes Prosecution More Likely

11/4/2015 6:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Voters in a Philadelphia suburb have spoken and made Bill Cosby a bigger target for prosecution.

Kevin Steele was just elected District Attorney of Montgomery County, where an investigation has been reopened in connection with claims made by Andrea Constand that Cosby drugged and assaulted her.

Steele was running against Bruce Castor, who served as the D.A. when the case was initially rejected back in 2005. Castor had said Constand's credibility was questionable, and during the campaign Steele blasted Castor for his decision, squarely addressing it in TV campaign ads.

During his victory speech, Steele said, "You made a choice to take it forward, to fight for victims, to fight for people who have been the subject of crimes."

Exclusive Details


Miami Beach police are at Lil Wayne's Miami Beach mansion right now, seizing property to satisfy a judgment against the rapper involving private jets. 

We're told when deputies arrived Wayne's security refused to let them in. The cops explained they were there to seize certain assets inside the house because Wayne had not paid a $2 million judgment to Signature Group, a jet leasing company. Wayne also owes the company $200k in lawyer's fees. The judgment came down in September.

We obtained the court order, which allows Miami-Dade County Sheriff's deputies to break the locks of the house and doors if necessary to gain entry and confiscate seizable assets.

Wayne is in L.A. He went to Ace of Diamonds strip club Monday night.

Exclusive Details

1029-blac-chyna-tattoo-artist-INSTAGRAM-01Blac Chyna is trying to convince the world her Future tattoo isn't the real deal -- that it's just a Sharpie drawing -- but we have the proof it's 100% authentic.

Chyna and her friends posted a video on Snapchat Wednesday night where they all had "Blac Chyna" written on their hands in Sharpie, and then she asked followers to do the same in solidarity.

But she ain't fooling us. TMZ has obtained a set of photos that show Future's tattoo artist, Steve Wiebe, inking the couple together several weeks ago ... just as we first reported.

We're told Chyna is pretending the tattoo never existed because she's hurt after Future publicly humiliated her by tweeting his single status. Chyna was under the impression they'd been dating exclusively for over a month. 



Birdman, Mack Maine Sued by 17-Year-Old I'm NOT That 'Affluenza' Kid

10/29/2015 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Mack Maine and Birdman just got sued for misidentifying a teenage boy for the kid who drunkenly killed 4 people and dodged jail time. 

Mark and Becky English claim they were shocked to learn a picture of their 17-year-old son was slapped on the cover of Mack Maine's album, misidentifying him as Ethan Couch.

You may recall, Couch got a slap on the wrist -- treatment facility and no jail time -- for driving drunk and killing 4 people. He got off after making the "affluenza" defense -- claiming he was the product of wealthy, privileged parents who never taught him right from wrong.

Mack made a song about Couch and plastered the young English on the cover. Birdman is also being sued because the album was released on his label.

Kordell Stewart Accuser 'It's True, I Never Dated Kordell'

10/29/2015 9:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The man who claimed he had a sexual relationship with ex-NFL star Kordell Stewart is admitting he made the whole thing up -- but says he isn't worried about Kordell's lawsuit.

As we previously reported, Stewart filed a lawsuit against viral video star Andrew Caldwell -- saying Caldwell lied and damaged his reputation when he went on a radio show and said they hooked up. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Caldwell who says ... "It's true, I never dated Kordell. But I'm not worried about the lawsuit. If Kordell wants money, he has money. I don't owe him a dime."

What's weird is despite the "I'm not worried" demeanor -- Caldwell seems to admit he hurt Stewart's reputation. 

"[What I said] did damage Kordell. He has a son. For his son to think, 'Is my dad gay?' That is damaging."

And it gets even weirder ... Caldwell says Kordell has since trashed HIM while denying the gay rumors -- and he's considering filing a lawsuit of his own. 


"I may go after Kordell. Yes, I hurt his name, but he also hurt mine."

Good luck with that ... 

Johnny Weir On the Hunt For Hook Ups

10/29/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Swipe left on the dating app Bumble and a half-naked photo of Johnny Weir wearing nothing more than a banana leaf just might pop up. 

The Olympic skater was in Chicago this weekend when his Bumble profile popped up for locals. For those outta the loop, Bumble's a dating app that's pretty much the same as Tinder.

It's clear he's ready to date again following his nasty, public divorce from Victor Voronov.

Weir's Bumble profile is stark, only mentioning he's a sports commentator at NBC who loves his dog and can speak 2 languages. But when you swipe through his images, a clearer pic emerges.

He should have no problem finding a date.


Samantha Hoopes Calls Out Blake Griffin We Should Hook Up

10/29/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dear Blake Griffin ... PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THIS VIDEO!!!!! 

S.I. swimsuit model Samantha Hoopes just called you out by name -- she thinks you're cute, she likes your freckles ... and she totally wants to hook up. 

In fact, she thinks you two were meant to be -- "My last name is Hoopes and he plays basketball!" 

Adorable, right?? It also helps that she has a body that looks like this: 

1028-sub-strap-hoopes-instagram-02Also, possible Russell Wilson diss!!! 

When asked what kind of athletes she likes, Hoopes says she'd rather date basketball players over football stars ... which is interesting since she was spotted around town with the Seahawks QB earlier this year. 

But that clearly fizzled ... leaving the door wide open for Mr. Griffin. 

Don't let us down, Blake. 


Glen Rice Jr. 911 'He's Completely Soaked In Blood'

10/28/2015 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports has obtained the dramatic 911 call made after Glen Rice Jr. was shot Sunday -- in which the caller says he personally witnessed Rice try to ditch a handgun while "leaking" blood.  

The caller is VERY descriptive -- saying he definitely heard gunfire and then saw the ex-NBA player frantically try to flag down a friend while screaming, "They just shot me."

As we previously reported, Rice was shot outside T.I.'s restaurant in Atlanta -- and according to the caller, he was "soaked" in blood which was spewing from his upper left thigh.  

At one point, the caller becomes afraid for his own safety -- and finally decides to leave the scene. 

A short time later, cops pulled over the Porsche that picked up Rice -- and he was arrested for weed possession and reckless conduct. 


Janice Dickinson I Never Took a Penny In Cosby Interviews

10/28/2015 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Janice Dickinson says Bill Cosby and his team were liars when they claimed she was just trying to make a buck by going after the comedian ... she says she hasn't taken a cent from TV shows. 

Dickinson filed legal docs in her lawsuit against Cosby, swearing under oath she's not in this for the money. She points to a 2014 interview on "Entertainment Tonight" where she said Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982 in Lake Tahoe. She says she got no money for the sit-down.

Dickinson says she did the interview "to stand in solidarity with the dozens of other women who had the same experience I did, being sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby."
